With the new-look cabin the Range Rover Sport line up is now priced from £61,315 - an increase of around £3,000 over the outgoing model which was introduced back in 2013. Badged P400e, the new model combines power of 295 bhp along with a 85kW electric motor. The range-topper betters the previous SVR's claimed 0-100kph time by 0.2 seconds, hitting the ton mark in 4.5 seconds. Read on for the United Kingdom price, performance and efficiency figures.

Really, though, it's all a little more club-fisted than that. That's 25 hp more than the previous model, allowing the Range Rover Sport SVR to go zero-to-60 miles per hour in 4.3 seconds (0-100 km/h in 4.5 seconds). Known as the Range Rover Sport 400e, the eco-minded SUV features a plug-in hybrid powertrain that is created to improve fuel economy and lower Carbon dioxide emissions. The vehicle has now been further refined, with the high-performance SVR model getting more power in the process.
